    Answered . If it is a simple DUI conviction, chances are you will not face deportation. You may be not be eligible to naturalize until the probation period has ended. I would recommend you take all of your paperwork and consult with a local attorney so that your issue can be properly assessed.

    Answered . When you entered a guilty plea, the judge informed/advised you on the record of your consequences. Ask a local attorney or call the public defender for more information. Good luck.
